Valentine’s Day is over so I put all the little Valentine touches away.
I haven’t made any big changes,
done any big makeovers,
or made any purchases.
I’ve just added a few little hints here and there that spring is on the way,
and taken some other photos of this and that to share with you.
I made a few simple changes on the mantel.
A bird’s nest holding a colored egg is perched under a cloche.
My Mama’s old, colorful, wooden spools of thread fill an apothecary jar.
The vintage trunk that serves as our coffee table holds a couple décor books and some of my favorite magazines.
(I love Where Women Cook! It’s a wonderful magazine of lovely kitchen décor and yummy recipes.)
A little wooden caddy holds a vintage hymnal and an old children’s Bible story book.
I removed the vintage Valentines from the drying rack photo display
and added some old hymn pages.
An old postcard of Mama’s hometown in Maine is held on the old drying rack with a clothes pin…
…along with photos of my Mama…isn’t she pretty?…
…and a photo of my handsome Daddy with me and my little brother enjoying sledding on Mt. Hood…
…and here’s yours truly!
On the dining table, my white wooden box traded places with my dark wooden tool caddy.
French lemonade bottles are lined up inside.
Lastly, I realized I’ve never showed you the treasures that top the kitchen cabinets…
vintage Franciscan ware…
…aqua colored canning jars mingled with a few apple shaped collectibles,
(the few I kept after I purged the house of most of the apple stuff following the “apple themed kitchen” phase)…
…Watts pottery and Mason Cash mixing bowls.
Well, that’s all I’ve got for you today.
It’s almost Friday!
Happy, Happy Friday and Have a Blessed Weekend,
